Guðrún (Finnbogadottir) Gallo was born in Northern Iceland. She graduated from Durham College in Oshawa, ON with a Graphic Design diploma in the mid 80’s. She worked as a Design Editor and Art Director for many well known national magazine publications and newspapers in Toronto, including The Toronto Star and The Globe and Mail National Newspaper before moving to Prince Edward County in 2001 with her young family. Guðrún has been painting for twenty years or so, taking a hiatus to focus on running her retail business. Fortunately she is now able to solely focus on her love of painting and creating, cultivating her unique style in acrylic and oil. Her work has been collected both privately and publicly. Guðrún has also displayed her art in various regional shows and galleries throughout Southeastern Ontario.
